2017 Technical Executive Forum

The Technical Executive Forum (TEF) — held annually at GHC — connects, inspires, and provides guidance to executive-level technical leaders from the Anita Borg Institute’s partner companies who view diversity in innovation as an imperative.


The Technical Executive Forum is a key Organization Transformation program designed to guide organizations in creating more inclusive workplaces. The exclusive, invitation-only event provides an opportunity for C-level technical executives from the Anita Borg Institute’s partner companies to connect, collaborate and learn best practices and actionable solutions for retaining and advancing women technologists.

Participating Companies

Do you want to learn more about TEF or the partner companies that participated? In 2016, 122 participants including CEOs, CTOs, and other senior executive-level technical executives from 74 organizations joined us in Houston to build awareness, learn from each other, and take action on practical strategies to form inclusively diverse technical teams. We expect a similar turn out in 2017.

Nomination Process

The 2017 TEF nomination process is now open. Selected participants will have the opportunity to connect, be inspired, and drive action in creating company cultures which leverage diversity for innovation.
